Movie review: Paul, Apostle of Christ

Okay, so Rotten Tomatoes gave Paul 25%; however, the audience score is 94%. With that in mind, I’ll address those who fall in the 94% group as my target audience.

I had the pleasure of interviewing several people as they left the theater. All gave it an A rating. No one was disturbed by the actual or implied violence, nor by the plot of the movie. Some critics panned *Paul* because of the time period chosen by the writers, who focused on the last days of Paul, rather than the earlier years: when he was first persecuting the Christians, or when after a visit from Christ (on the road to Damascus) he became the number one fan of Jesus. With a character from the Bible as interesting and colorful as Paul, you could choose just about any time in his life and still make a good movie.

The acting was above par, but the directing fell short. There were many scenes filmed in semi-darkness and often times the dialog was unintelligible, making the movie a little less watchable.
